Bartra Injured In Explosion Near Dortmund Bus En Route Signal Iduna Park

share on:

Borussia Dortmund defender, Marc Bartra has sustained an injury to his arm after three explosions rocked the BVB team bus.

The bus was leaving their hotel for the first leg of their quarterfinal clash against Monaco at Signal Iduna Park.

The match has been pushed by 22 hours and BVB CEO, Hans-Joachim Watzke described the events.

“We were shocked, but the team has been shocked the most,” he said. “There was a bomb attack when the team left the stadium.

“Marc Bartra is slightly injured, he is in the hospital and it hit his hand.”

Monaco goalkeeper Danijel Subasic commented on the “terrible” feeling in Dortmund, with uncertainty over the cause and reason for the team bus incident.

“We are in the stadium, in a safe, but the feeling is terrible,” he told 24sata. “Rather than run out before the full stadium and play in Champions League match, we sit quietly in the locker room and think about where all of this leads.

“I do not know whether and when at all matches to play, but it is currently less important. I hope that Bartra, or anyone that was hurt, will be ok.
